Thanks Irish, I am not obsessed about anyone's health. I like to be diplomatic. But when I see this and know that six hundred something people have read the thread at this point I think about more than one person and offer caution where it is needed. If someone can show my comments to be incorrect I would carefully read any information they have.

You are responding to GEMINI's post....Not mine....  :)just so you know.

I just re-read my post and it seems I did write protein where I meant to say fats. I apologize for the confusion. Please read the article I linked though, I took the time to type all that out because I was concerned. I have had friends who ended up in kidney failure because of the Adkins diet. I don't want that to happen to you. 

Ksee.....again, you misunderstand......where did you get the impression that I was following the Atkins diet?  The Atkins diet is a medical diet for those who are facing bypass surgery and need to drop weight FAST.  Somehow, it made it's way into mainstream America and people loved it because it does make you lose weight fast....but it's not the type of diet you can follow long term.  Only those who are seriously overweight should even consider it, not people who are suffering from Celiac Disease who are classic Celiacs like myself, the skinny malnourished kind.  I started to show signs of ketosis the week I hit the wall with celiac because I had no body fat left and was burning muscle.  It's a good thing I was able to figure it out because the doctor I went to see that week totally blew me off.  I was dying and she blew me off.  I was able to figure out the problem, ask for the blood work and be on my way to a solid diagnosis.

 

I made the comment that people who follow the Atkins diet, long term, very often develop really bad breath and smell like acetone, because of ketosis.  I never implied that people should follow the diet or that I myself follow the diet.  I do not think it a good idea to cut carbs from your diet, unless you have an intolerance to grains in general.  I certainly don't because I weight train. 

 

I hope that I have made things clearer for you.  I am not arguing either....just not quite sure where your posts were coming from.

I had a friend who was diabetic and I could smell on his skin when he was heading for a fit. Freaked him out though.

 

I have very sensitive smell and hearing too, I wonder if there is a link.

 

I found mirror touch synesthesia helped to explain some of it, but I got that from a book and don't have links I'm afraid.

 

I don't mind smelling the flowers more, but train, plane and bus journeys can be a bit hairy with super sensitive smell. I lived on a main road, and the noise nearly drove me insane.

Gemini,

 

What you described was my exact problem.  I was the skinny malnourished celiac.  Because I didn't know how to cut gluten the right way I dumped all my carbs with the wheat!  Whoops!  It was scary.  I know I'm all over this thread but these were the symptoms that freaked me out the worst.  So glad to have it corrected.

    • Your getting plenty of proteins for once and I would drop the L-glutamine supplement what brand is it? Paleo Protein as in the brand? They were not gluten free last I checked, I got sick from it 2 years ago or so when they changed to a non dedicated facility.
    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
